Soon after we started running classes at the Custard Factory back in 2012, we began to sell some key pieces of equipment so students could try out their new skills at home. Since then, our range has gradually expanded and with every new class and skill we teach, we have tried to stock the equipment to match.
What sets us apart from other cake decorating suppliers is that we only stock items that we use ourselves on a regular basis in making our own bespoke cakes, and/or that we teach you how to use on our popular classes.
You can place orders for collection from The Custard Factory (open 8.30am - 6pm) or delivery is FREE for orders over £100, £5 for orders over £60 and £7.50 for all other orders. We use Royal Mail and post your items First Class. Click and collect orders placed before midday will be available for collection from 2pm, and orders placed after midday will be available from 9am the next working day. Please note we (and The Custard Factory) are closed on Sundays.
You can bake with the finest ingredients and mix everything together with absolute precision, but if you are baking with the wrong equipment, your cakes just won’t work. We only sell the tins and tools we use ourselves in our bakery so you can rest assured they are top quality.
When you're decorating a cake, it is important to work with the right tools. We only sell equipment we use ourselves to decorate our bespoke cakes, and much of what you see here is equipment we demonstrate with at our classes and workshops. We stock a variety of brands, having experimented with a lot of what's out there, you can be sure you're getting a good quality, and cost effective product.
Using the right coverings for your creation is (quite literally!) the icing on the cake! Food colourings are a really important ingredient in the decorating of a cake too, and there is only one brand we will use. Here you will find cake coverings, food colourings, edible dusts and sprays.
